its alright, it was worth it costco has some pretty awesome ice cream.

its what i get for running the bumper into a rock several times trying to drag it up. i'll get some new brackets and bend everything back and make it stronger when the winch goes on.

oh Sam what are you planning on doing for a radiator skid?
For the radiator skid I'll probably take some flat plate, throw some dimple holes in it and tab it off the bumper to the radiator cross member.

i'm thinking of using some of the holes from the factory skid that goes there. so go off the bumper mounts and then some all thread up to the rear skid holes?

maybe do a rad skid fab day haha.

Does anyone have a 5x5.5 15 wheel they want to get rid of?

In other news past a jeep on the side of the freeway 100% coated in mud. Three guys looking under hood with puzzled looks. 😄😄

Thanks guys! She's an amazing women and I feel blessed to have her in my life.

Kevin: we're having a postponed honeymoon in Peru. We're both pretty into hiking and climbing and can't think of a better place to do both :-). And I whole heartily agree with that thirst thing lol

Premo - I grew up in Bolivia, have been to Cusco and Machu Pichu. There's a nice place in Cusco to stay that's economical, nice, and helps support orphans there. PM me if you want some info.

James, if it was my shop (where I do the fabbing as opposed to my shop where I weld) I'd say come on up! As it is I fab at my friends house. He's got the bender and torch.... a brake, and other items as well. I just weld, notch and do other minor stiff at my house.

Xpress, is my ZJ turning you to the Grand Cherocar!?

600, congrats on the wedding. As a former orphan I appreciate the help wherever it happens!

Oh ok, I think you could make something simple and easy enough with just a welder and angle ginder. Unless you wanna do the dimple die.

Oh I definitely want the dimples! That or slots to match my bumper... Come to think of it, I may just tie into/extend my bumper directly and extend the slots down further!

Of course I still need to get my sliders made and installed... then there's the roof rack to make. Plus the rear bumper and gas tank skid. Plus I want to get some under body armor on.

Oh, and there's always the rotors, pads and front cv axles on my shelf to install. Got to do a major tune up, plugs wires, fuel filter and major fluid change, tranny filter....

All this while I am expecting my 3rd to be born before the end of November if not earlier... the wife has been on bed rest for the last 6 weeks with very early contractions. Children, the ultimate sexually transmitted disease! Gotta love em! Wouldn't trade mine for anything.

No way man, I gotta get something to lug the YJ though

I think I need to start looking for a welder. Figured I could find a good used one on the CL, what do you guys suggest?? I'm kinda leaning towards a Lincoln model...

The list usually gets longer faster then it gets shorter. Why not get a gas tank skid off a zj in the junkyard. I will tell you now that I tag my hitch and bumper before I hit the gas tank skid.

I've got a hitch on there, I just want something more stout. When I do the rear bumper I'm gonna need to get a big sheet of steel anyway so I might as well do the gas tank skid while I'm there...

Yeah it just seems easier to just get something that's already done. You could always add to it once you get one.
